The last version had an issue when you came from on old setup of DropboxPortableAHK. The application did just crash with an empty error message without any further information. Unfortunately, this also broke the auto update.
Users of v184.108.40.206 can either:
- download the latest version manually and replace the old DropboxPortableAHK.exe with the new one (recommended), or
- delete the DropboxPortableAHK\.dbfiles\profile\AppData\Local\Dropbox file manually (which fixes the empty error message and allows the auto update to work)
Hopefully, the current version works fine again 🙂
Here is a copy of the announcement of the last version since they are still valid:
The new beta version makes DropboxPortableAHK usable again with the latest Dropbox version (9.4.49) 🙂
It is not possible to run multiple Dropbox instances simultaneously, yet. This includes the regular Dropbox client. To sync multiple instances, you can simply start them one after another and shut them down again when they finished syncing.
This can easily be automated with DropboxPortableAHK’s SyncAndGo feature.

The new version works like a charm again. Thanks a lot for the update. I’m glad to have made a small donation a couple of months ago.
thanks for this awesome new update
Thank you very much for the fix! You save my life…. 🙂
Thanks a lot for this new update, it’s works well.
Doesn’t work to me, tried 220.127.116.11_beta. Still complains it wants to download a new dropbox version. I deleted the AppData\Local\Dropbox folder and started a new installation but same problem. It wants to download a new dropbox version. Dropbox released a new version just a few days ago or maybe it’s a known problem and if so you can help to fix? Thanks
Please don’t post both, here in the comments and on the mailing list.
